SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — $353,870 has been reached from Stewart’s Holiday Match Program customer donations through Monday, December 5, meaning over $706,000 has been raised with the Stewart’s match!

With nearly three weeks left to collect, the Stewart’s Holiday Match Program donates 100% of the donations received to charities in their market areas and has no administrative fees.

For the past 36 years, Stewart’s has raised over $34 million for local charities!

Stewart’s says that funding may go towards a little league team, a local food pantry, or an arts program at the library, and every week a different Holiday Match recipient is highlighted.

Funds for the Holiday Match Program are collected from thanksgiving to Christmas Day in each of the 353 Stewart’s Shops.
